We’re proud to announce the launch of our newest project, Rethink Together, an essential part of XQ Institute’s complex, multisite network. XQ is revolutionizing the way that high schools think about education. XQ works hand in hand with communities across the country to help them dream big about what high school could be, turn innovative ideas into action, and create more rigorous and equitable schools.
XQ came to Athletics, a WordPress VIP Silver Agency Partner, with the task of building a new website and platform for student and educator communication, interaction, and knowledge sharing. When looking for an engineering partner to assist in their development efforts, XWP was chosen to help.
The project goal was to create a platform that acts as a digital magazine and communication hub for high school students, educators, and families across the country. With a discussion forum at the heart of the site, Rethink Together also features a library of engaging articles and videos, along with access to online learning experiences and design challenges that help students build real-world skills.
The timeline for development was short, so our team made a quick pivot, adapting our processes and workflows to accommodate the needs of the project. We rapidly set out to develop a bespoke solution for the platform, integrating with XQ’s chosen communication platform BuddyBoss. From the project’s inception, our team created a clean, modular codebase that will allow for easy expansion in the future.
Together with Athletics, we delivered an outstanding product for students and staff of XQ. With limited time before final delivery, our teams worked closely together to prioritize needs, evaluate technical solutions, and build a fast, optimized site.– Duncan Schouten, Product Manager, XWP
We’re excited to continue our collaboration with Athletics on Rethink Together as we improve XQ’s platform, deepening integration with other areas of the XQ online ecosystem and building support for new product features in the months to come.
The XQ Rethink Together project has been an example of excellent work and partnership at the highest level. This project wouldn’t have been a success without the team’s incredible hard work, focus, and dedication, as well as the collaborative effort from our partners at Athletics.– Matt Chung, Sr. Project Manager, XWP
